About this listing
Experience Berlin like a local, live in a 20th century flat in a quiet but central street in one of Berlin's oldest districts. Surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants with the underground in front of the building.
We took the vintage elements of the flat and combined it with modern design and technology. You'll find Internet, a modern kitchen, a vintage bathroom with new fittings, TV, wooden flooring, build-in library and quirky features.
The neighborhood is one of the new up& coming districts in Berlin. According to one of my guest:
"Moabit/Mitte has become the new insiders' tip of Berlin. Just in front of the house are a couple of cool bars, a big supermarket and bakeries are around as well. So you have everything you need".
The quiet, courtyard facing bedroom sleeps 2 and in the big living room area you'll find another bed and a sleeping sofa. All beds and mattresses are brand new.
The place was refurbished in September. More details below:

We were pleased with the apartment and the contact with the host. The balcony had a nice view!
After some great communication before our trip, we arrived at the address given for the flat with instruction to collect keys from the restaurant Dicker Engel downstairs. The apartment was clean and as described/pictured with plenty of room for our party of 4. The balcony was a great addition with the good weather we had during our visit. One thing I would suggest needs improvement are the very light netted curtains, we were woken up very early every morning due to the light getting in and it was a struggle to get back to sleep. On our second day, a member of our party accidentally locked our only set of keys for the apartment inside and Marleen provided a spare set, left at the restaurant directly below the flat, within a couple of hours. Great host and place, would recommend!
Sleutel was op de afgesproken plek en van binnen was alles schoon en netjes. Een bult ruimte binnen. en U - bahn voor de deur is ideaal.
The apartment is exactly as advertised and is very convenient for the subway around Berlin. A little warm however temperatures were exceptionally hot at the time. Check in process especially simple and effective and overall great.
Wir haben die Wohnung für unser Berlinwochenende gemietet. Mit zwei Kindern hatten wir genug Platz. Sie war sehr sauber und gepflegt. Die Lage ist perfekt, vor der Tür ist direkt die U-Bahn Station. Man kommt also überall gut hin. Sehr empfehlenswert.
Marlene's apartment is located right in front of the exit of U9. The interior decoration like a boat. It is very clean and simple. The restaurant Dicker Engel downstairs offers also proper German food with good prices. I would recommend this apartment for young travelers who won't stay too long in Berlin, because the apartment is located on 5th floor without a lift, a washing machine and the kitchen cooker is not very powerful.
The place was perfect for our short trip. Marleen played a perfect host by giving instructions and tips to make most out of holiday in easy and affordable. The flat is well articulated and beautifully designed. It was very close to station and restaurants right below the flat. I would definitely recommend this place for ruckkehrunruhe feel.

About the Host, Marleen
I'm originally from Berlin and recently moved back after having spent a couple of years in London and other places. Thought it's time to return to one of the most vibrant cities in Europe.. Let's see..
